Richard Thompson Illustration

I'm a commercial Illustrator who started work with the airbrush in the early 1990's. The airbrush quickly faded however and I transitioned to digital work. I started initially working as I traditionally had, in an airbrush style but soon started incorporating 3D elements and then added photography to my repertoire. Most images I create combine all 3 of these elements, photography, photoshop and 3D. I also do a fair amount of photo retouching work for clients. I prefer to call what I do "Visual Problem Solving" due to some of the unique technological, stylistic and scheduling hurdles I have to overcome. For 25 years now I have created and manipulated images for the advertising industry. I can provide layered files (if desired) in any format, and send them via web transfer anywhere in the world.
